I found this App in my Fedora 14 Repos and am trying it out...


Lightspark is a modern, free, open-source flash player implementation. Lightspark features:

  • JIT compilation of Actionscript to native x86 bytecode using LLVM
  • Hardware accelerated rendering using OpenGL Shaders (GLSL)
  • Very good and robust support for current-generation Actionscript 3
  • A new, clean, codebase exploiting multithreading and optimized for modern hardware. Designed from scratch after the official Flash documentation was released.
